The Federal Court of Appeal has issued a statement explaining why Jose Mourinho’s two-match suspension was upheld following his sideline dispute with fourth official Marco Serra.

The FIGC issued a statement yesterday explaining why Mourinho’s appeal against the two-match ban was rejected, noting that the documents submitted by the club “did not offer certain evidence to overturn the decision, particularly with regard to the assessment of J. Mourinho’s conduct. The statement highlights how Mourinho’s sideline spat with Serra and the argument in the dressing room after full time were taken into account. It was also noted that this decision was based on the referee’s report and was not related to the investigation into Serra’s conduct.
